Revision and Conversion Surgery


For a variety of reasons some patients may experience the need for a revision, correction or conversion of their original bariatric operation. Sometimes individuals may benefit from an additional procedure to help them lose weight again or treat specific symptoms.

Dr. Williams is happy to evaluate your situation and recommend appropriate treatment. It is helpful if you can obtain a copy of your previous operative reports. Before your consultation our office can arrange an upper GI x-ray study to further define your anatomy. This will help with surgical planning.

Just because a previous bariatric procedure or program has failed you it does not mean that there is no hope. Many patients that have had their surgery elsewhere have benefited from our comprehensive program. Please call New Life Center for Bariatric Surgery at (865) 694-9676 to learn about your options for revision, correction, or conversion surgery.
